Olympic wrestler and on-again-off-again Octagon badass Sara McMann is going to be out for a while.

No, she didn’t fail any USADA drug tests…

…Although she did take a test…

Homegirl is pregnant, which, if you know anything about females, radically alters their ability to compete in violent cagefighting bouts. So congrats to her! With her last two fights ending in losses, the former title contender who always seemed to be struggling to find traction in the Octagon could likely use this break.

Here’s her official announcement:

I’ve been dying to tell the world 🤰🏻❤❤❤ The short story: Chad and I started trying after my last fight and that SOB knocked me up immediately 😄 I’m 12 weeks along! The long version: I’ve had bad shoulder injuries my last 2 fights (torn labrum and rotator cuffs in BOTH shoulders). I have to take time off to get healthy no matter what. I’m 37 and I’m getting too close to the time of possibly not being able to conceive. We decided that it was the right time in all aspects. So, yes I will still be fighting. My body handles pregnancy very well and I am training thru the majority of it. Thanks to everyone who is happy for our happiness 😁😁😁 #ufc #pregnancyannouncement #12weekspregnant #beyondgrateful
